Prince Demands Video Clips Be Removed
Prince is demanding that video clips from his London concerts be removed from the internet and has hired British firm Web Sheriff to ensure his demands are met. He’s also demanding YouTube and Pirate Bay web sites remove whatever clips they have as well as demanding online stores like eBay remove unauthorized merchandise, which he says violate copyright laws.
Said a spokesman for Web Sheriff:
“We are not targeting fans who might want to sell their copy of ‘Purple Rain’; we are targeting companies in China manufacturing Prince handbags and selling them in their thousands.”
Prince has spent the summer playing 21 gigs at London’s O2 arena and although fans were prohibited from taking photographs or video footage, many still uploaded clips to the web.
